Reflecting On What Is Working

Monday, January 25, 2016. I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I, like the rest of the Maryland cohort, spent a good part of the weekend shoveling snow and digging out from the ~30 inches of snow that fell from late Friday and most of Saturday.  And then digging out again once the wind had settled down and the […]

The recent MOR Tuesday Readings on asking questions made me remember one of these examples of bad leadership, which I call: […]

Planning is Planning, whether for a Scuba Dive or a Project

Two Powerful Tools: Being Still and 90 Minute Blocks

I have come to enjoy and value the weekly reflections as well as Jim Bruce’s Tuesday readings.  A few weeks ago in the Tuesday reading, Be Still, I was struck by the truth and simplicity of what was written in that piece.  I thought to myself, why not use “being still” as the foundation for everything that […]
